BREAKING: Tottenham sack Nuno after just four months in charge



Nuno Espirito Santo has been sacked by Tottenham after just four months in charge.

Tottenham’s depressing loss to Manchester United on Saturday proved a fatal blow to Nuno’s hopes of staying in charge..

Prior to Saturday’s feeble performance, Sportsmail understands that removing Nuno from his position as head coach had not been formally discussed by chairman Daniel Levy and other key figures despite the club’s mediocre start to the campaign.

Fabio Paratici, Tottenham’s managing director, said: ‘I know how much Nuno and his coaching staff wanted to succeed and I regret that we have had to take this decision.

‘Nuno is a true gentleman and will always be welcome here. We should like to thank him and his coaching staff and wish them well for the future.’

Santo departs alongside his coaching staff Ian Cathro, Rui Barbosa and Antonio Dias.

However, the team’s underperformance has been a concern among the club’s hierarchy for several weeks.

And the manner of Saturday’s loss to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team and the alarming crowd reaction to it has now forced the club into drastic action.

Levy and the club’s hierarchy, including director of football Fabio Paratici, held emergency talks to discuss Nuno’s future on Sunday and decided to wield the axe.

There was a sense that sacking Nuno was a direct reaction to the deafening boos that echoed round the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Saturday night, with particular vitriol aimed at the board.
